Island Air to Expand With Q400s
[Aviation Today April 1, 2014] Hawaiian regional carrier Island Air has placed a $60.9 million order for two Q400 NextGen turboprop aircraft, with options to purchase four additional Q400s. The airline selected the dual-class 71-seat configuration for its new Q400s. If all options were exercised, the purchase value would increase to $188 million, Bombardier said.
Island Air will look to deploy the new aircraft on its routes to and from the islands of Oahu, Maui, Lanai and Kauai.
